Before settlers settled in 1798, the area was originally inhabited by at least five Native American cultures, including tribes of Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Creeks, and Shawnees. On October 26, 1799, the Tennessee General Assembly created both Franklin and Williamson County.

Williamson County was host to Civil War battles such as the Battle of Brentwood, the Battle of Thompson Station and one of the the bloodiest battle of the war, the Battle of Franklin.


Williamson County is a treasure trove of opportunities for shopping, jobs and leisurely pursuits. It boasts lush rolling hills and greenways for the nature lover, big-city boutiques for the fashionistas and Civil War landmarks that are sure to pique the interest of history buffs. Some of the South’s most beautiful plantation homes and horse farms can be seen here, nestled within the rolling countryside. In Franklin, civil war battlegrounds coexist with million-dollar homes, while some of the most exclusive shops and boutiques are located nearby. Rich with history, Franklin has earned the distinction of the Great American Main Street Award, given in recognition of successful downtown revival and the restoration of buildings with historical significance.

In addition to the attraction of historic downtown Franklin and the surrounding city, Williamson County has many other admirable features. It is known for its excellent school system, high-quality housing and excellent health care (with the Williamson County Medical Center located in Franklin). The outstanding public and private recreational facilities are extensive and include Williamson County Recreation Center, Legends Golf Club and the Little Course at Aspen Grove.

Williamson County has more properties on the National Register of Historic Places than any county outside of Virginia.
